Three Northland filmmakers will be featured in the Midwest Fly Fishing Film Showcase set for Sunday at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth.
Filmmaker David Cowardin of Duluth presents two films: “Above Barriers: Brook Trout Off the Beaten Path’’ and “Game Changer: A Watershed Moment.”
"Above Barriers" highlights remote wilderness brook trout fishing along the North Shore via pack rafts. "Game Changer" profiles Duluth angler Alyssa Nelson, a Hartley Nature Center educator and fly angler.
Filmmaker Brent Notbohm of Duluth presents “Autumn Days,” a film about the Bois Brule River featuring steelhead and brown trout.
Filmmaker Luke Kavajecz of Bayfield presents two films: “Two Shallow Seasons” and “North Coast.” In "Two Shallow Seasons," Kavajecz, also a fishing guide, showcases the diverse Chequamegon Bay fishery, highlighting massive bass, brown trout and more. "North Coast" is a stunning visual piece on rugged steelhead fishing on the North Shore.
In all, more than a dozen short films will be featured. The film festival serves as a fundraiser for the local Gitche Gumee Chapter of Trout Unlimited to help pay for conservation projects in the region, namely on trout streams.
